I'm new here, was wondering if anyone here is self Medicating on Natural Dessicated Thyroid?
I've been diagnosed with Hashimotos for near 13 years, mostly just on t4 thyroxine, teary had blood results in the normal
Range but even when they were I still had the symptoms of Hashi.
I want to take t3 but in Australia you can't unless you are a cancer patient or are intolerant to synthetic t4.
I purchase NDT from the USA recently and started taking half of a half grain for about 5 days, I developed a rash that I thought was the NDT (though now I'm not so sure) so I halved the dose, the rash eased then returned so I stopped taking the NDT but the rash has continued to fade and return and seems to be from eating cashew nuts!
Anyway, I want to start again on the NDT.
My Ffre T4 and T3 are below normal rang and TSHis high.
Just wondering if any of you have switched from synthetic and how you started taking NDT.
Ps I did tell my gp if ordered it and she didn't seem to bothered considering its banned here, she just told me I would need to be careful to not Over do the T4.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated
